Did you know... You can take your puppy out in public areas 10 days after the 14 week vaccination.

To maintain immunity, adult dogs require some booster vaccinations annually, while some vaccines are only needed every three years. 

Your vet will often send you a reminder when your dogs’ vaccinations are due.
